Movements on the big screen

Four movies over four days, showing what choreography can be on the screen, in an unorthodox way.

VEGA Scene

8. October - Kl 18.00

This program’s starting-off point is movement on the big screen – combined with a desire to look at choreography from a different angle. The program comprises a variety of genres and time periods, ranging from the more obscure to the more commercial. It will probably surprise you – and hopefully start a discussion about what choreography really is.

Even though choreography is regularly used in fight scenes in movies, we rarely think about it as such. And as dance is most often presented on a stage, this is where it is “supposed” to be. We hope with this program to give an insight into and raise awareness about what dance and choreography can be. An exploration of the order and composition of movements, if you like.

All of the films will be introduced by a carefully selected dance short. Hopefully, both dance afficionados and film buffs will find something to enjoy.

The program is a collaboration between program director at Vega Scene, Truls Foss, and CODA Oslo International Dance Festival, as well as DansiT, Trondheim, who supplied the dance shorts.
